First i want to dedicate this post to all the bashers, i just want to put these few numbers out there because I've been seeing alot of bashing of the habs and if people actuall looked into the upgrades montreal has made they would be suprised. This is a comparrison of the top three forwards and D that were let go and picked up. Gainey removed Kovy, Koivu and Tanguay and aquired Cami, Gomez and Gionta. He also removed Komi, Bouillon and Schneider and aquired Mara, Spacek and Gill. In comparing the numbers from last season and personal info here are the results. Montreal is +68 in the points department, not a bad upgrade. They have 69 less penalty minutes, thats always a plus. They are 16 years younger, always good to stay young. And the big shocker of all montreal has gained 2 inches of height, oh yeas you read it right we are now 2 inches bigger. So to all the bashers out there this should shed a differnt light on the outlook of the canadiens for the up coming season. Of course other upgades we made and the others we lost could easily be replaced with a bag of pucks. Just wanted to shed some light on this subject as it has taking such a beat down in previous post.
